The first thing to understand is wether your stone can be managed with just medicines. Usually kidney stones less than 8 mm can be managed with medicines. Occasionally smaller stones that are stuck in the pipe of the kidney called the ureter also require removal but usually most ureteric stone less than 5mm can be managed with medicines.

Stones in the  lower half of the pipe of the kidney are removed by a surgery called uretero-reno-scopy (URS) while stones in the kidney are managed with either lithotripsy (ESWL) or laser surgery such as RIRS or PCNL. Lets understand them in greater details.


Lithotripsy uses sound waves to break stones without surgery. There is no needle, no scars and no need for anesthesia. 

ESWL requires 2 to 3 sittings to break stones and stones pass out naturally through the kidney pipe called the ureter.

It is the easiest and safest procedure for kidney stones and also the least expensive

Scarless kidney stone treatment using laser is possible through retrograde Intra-renal Surgery.

The procedure requires placement of a stent and also requires administration of anesthesia.

RIRS uses the latest technology and is the most modern surgery for kidney stones. Of course it comes at a cost.
